I've been having a really really rough week. I haven't been able to shake the feeling that some of the things H did during his affair are just unforgivable. And that both of us would forever be tainted by his actions.
Then I ran across this NY Times article this morning, and it helped me snap out of it immediately. It's not about infidelity. It's about the Rwandan genocide. But both the perpetrators and the victims look strong and beautiful to me. It made me realize that both me and H can be strong and beautiful after this, too. We aren't forever tainted, and I need to let that fear go.
